Ten more B 2 words to guess
 
Thanks for guessing
 
 

Exactly the same

To use language that is rude or offensive

To give someone more hope, courage or confidence

To try very hard to do something difficult

To give your money to a bank or business in the hope of getting a profit

A story that circulates without confirmation that it is true

 

To complete your education successfully at a college or university, or in the US, at school

So silly or absurd it makes you laugh

Showing behavior like that of a small child

Wanting a lot more money, food etc. than you need

Cunliffe, does hilarious include the "absurd" aspect?

Elderberrywine - remember that often more than one word is correct. If your students can think of a synonym for the word you were thinking of, it ´s a good opportunity to show them how rich their vocabulary is!

That ´s true. But the whole thing is for a game in which students tell each other whether their answers are correct or not - and I can only write one correct answer on the card, two at the most.  So I keep trying to narrow the definitions down. Wrong approach, I suppose. grmpf

I thought of "hilarious", too. "Ridiculous" doesn ´t necessarily make you laugh.

Bruce is so right about ´ridiculous ´. It can describe something terrible, truly awful. Check out the subtitles  on this story.
